The Wolf Among Us is a video game take on the classic New York City procedural crime drama — it's just one that happens to star the Big Bad Wolf and Snow White. It's the latest release from Telltale Games, the studio behind last year's smash hit game series based on The Walking Dead, and the two franchises share a lot in common. Both are based on a graphic novel series — The Wolf Among Us is set in the same world as the Fables comics — both are divided into five episodes, and both force choices on players.

But while the two games are similar in many ways, they're also very different experiences. Whereas The Walking Dead is dark and stressful, the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, dubbed "Faith," is a stylish hardboiled drama with characters that somehow feel important — despite being ripped from the pages of your favorite fairy tales.
